Prizes have been spotted off the port-bow!

Prizes are ships or locations on the Sea Map that have either been captured by the evil forces of the Spanish Fleet, or are under threat of being boarded! Punish this insult by sending in your most merciless Pirates – we’ll show the scurvy bilge rats what happens when they dare to hunt in Pirate waters!

NEW DREAD FLEET UNITS

06/27/2012
game

Captains!

The war will now become more fierce not only on land but at sea!

Dread Fleet has now vessels to offer!

HMS Reliant

Precision sighted long guns, a massive fighting deck, and a draft shallow enough allowing her to maneuver close to shore make this heavy defensive barque ideal for close-in coastal defense. When protected by a fleet of Gunboats and Men O' War, she can easily resist all but the most dedicated attack.

HMS Invincible

The first of a new line of Steamships from the Royal Shipyards, she was to be the symbol of British naval sea power (before her crew mutinied four hours into her maiden voyage). Her massive guns and ability to sail without wind make her a formidable opponent – and when supporting Brigantines and Frigates, she truly lives up to her name.

Set a course for the Smuggler’s Den to put ‘em through their paces!

-Capt. “Bonnie” Anne O’Malley

NEW DREAD FLEET UNITS

06/21/2012
game

Blimey!

Look what exotic creatures have come to join us in battle!

War Elephant

Trained to defend the trading posts of the African Coastline from marauding slavers, raiders, and Barbary Pirates, these War Elephants fear neither man, beast, nor spirit. Their crushing psychological impact on would-be attacker's moral makes these Pirate Pachyderms a fine addition to any Haven defense.

Each additional Defensive Mercenary crew supporting the War Elephant receives a bonus to its defensive statistics.

We also have new technologies on our side, my seadogs!

Le Grande Cannon

A giant bronze cannon that sends your enemies straight off to Davy Jones with a "bang", and in very small pieces.The more offensive Mercenaries you have crewing this beauty, faster it can pummel entire islands to back into the sea. It doesn't exactly make for a small target, so don't use it for defense.

NEW DREAD FLEET UNITS

06/14/2012
game

Avast, ye villainous codfish!

Now you can now recruit even more horrendous crew to your Dread Fleet!

Captain Flint

Meet the foulest, cruelest, most ruthless demon of a man to walk a deck since Blackbeard - Captain Flint! He is a match for any dozen Pirates (alive or dead). His notorious habit of shooting the slowest members of his crew in the back when attacking enemy ships has made him a legend in naval motivational history. Each additional Offensive Pirate unit under his command receives a bonus to his offensive statistics!

Airship

You can also take advantage of Master Van Der Voort's latest addition to his fleet of flying machines - the Airship! The Airship is considerably more effective than the regular Flying Dutchman at scouting enemy Havens and protecting your port from prying eyes. Each additional Flying Dutchman that takes to the skies with the Airship receives an additional bonus to scouting and counter-scouting statistics.

Set a course for the Smuggler’s Den to put ‘em through their paces!

SURGEON

06/13/2012
game

Captains!

The stakes are higher, the battles are bigger, and the seas are more dangerous than ever before! What with these Spaniards and Monsters, we’re losing men left n’ right! This will never do!

So... I’ve called in some extra help. From now on, every Haven will have access to a Ship’s Surgeon. Using all the latest advancements that 17th century Pirate medicine has to offer (sharper saws, padded tourniquets, gags, n’ strong rum), he’ll patch your boys up right as rain - plus or minus a limb or two.

The Surgeon allows you to recover a certain percentage of any units you've lost in battle within the last 7 days. His services come at a price - your lost Units will be revived at a discount of 20% off their original selling price in Rubies at the Smuggler's Den - so use him wisely.

Don’t let them sissies slack off just because they’re short a hand or eye or foot - that’s what hooks and patches are for! Slap a peg-leg on 'em and send 'em back into battle!

Sincerely,

Capt. “Bonnie” Anne O’Malley

Captains! The day has come - the Dread Fleet has arrived!

05/30/2012
game

New foul spirits from beyond the grave and legendary creatures of the briny deep are ready to join your fight for domination over the High Seas!

The vengeful spirits of the Plague Ship, doomed to sail on for eternity avenging their horrible deaths upon the living, are now at your service. A terrifying weapon to lead any Armada attack, the very sight of this ship will consign your foes to pestilence and death!

Each additional Offensive Armada unit sailing with the Plague Ship receives an offensive bonus.

The Kraken needs no introduction. If you're bold enough to chain the beast before your harbor, he'll turn attacking Fleet ships into kindling. When his grasping tentacles drive your foes towards your waiting Submarines - there's even less chance of escape.

Each Submarine working with the Kraken receives an additional defensive bonus.

So, captains... will you dare to make an alliance with these supernatural creatures for the domination over the Spanish Main? Or wait for your enemies to do it first? The choice be yours!

Now available at the Smuggler’s Den!

We’ve sighted the Spaniard!

game

Step lively now, ye swabs!

The lookouts have spotted sails over the horizon! Spanish, by the look of ‘em... it seems as if his Royal Kingship Carlos-Ferdinand weren’t just blowing hot air n’ pretty words! Aye, he’s up to something alright - I’d bet me finest ship on it. Keep a weather-eye to the horizon lads... ‘tis fine weather for a fight.

NEW GAME FEATURE - PRESIDIOS!

04/27/2012
game

Ahoy, Captains!

The evil Spanish King Carlos-Ferdinand IV has declared open warfare upon all Pirate Brotherhoods!

There’s only one hope for survival - the abandoned Spanish Presidios scattered across the Caribbean. It’s a race against the King’s Fleet and your rival Pirate Brotherhoods - whoever captures and holds the most Presidios will have dominion over the Spanish Main! The let the battle for the Caribbean begin!

No Captain can do it alone! - to join the fight you must ally with an existing Brotherhood, or start your own.

Beware! The Presidios may be heavily defended by the Spaniards or rival Brotherhoods. Taking them will require teamwork and careful coordination.

Presidios can be managed with the help of your Brethren Court. Your Master at Arms will send you reports about everything that happens in your Brotherhood's Presidios, and your Merchant will help inform you about Resource deliveries to your Presidios as you work to rebuild them.

You can find more info about Presidios in the Help Window.

The Presidios await their new Masters! Who shall it be? You and your brave Pirate Brethren, your rivals… or the ruthless forces of the Spanish Armada? The let the battle for the Caribbean begin!

NEW GAME FEATURE - RELICS!

04/02/2012
game

Hidden deep within the forgotten places of the world's oceans lay powerful Relics from across the centuries... any Captain lucky enough to find them may harness their arcane powers towards crushing his rivals and satisfying his lust for gold n’ glory!

Start scourin’ the seas to find their resting places - The Spire of Atlantis, The Lost Temple, Blackbeard’s Cove, and the Mythical City o’ Cibola Aquaticus. If fortune smiles upon ye, a lucky Pirate may also stumble upon ‘em in the heat of battle.

Good luck to ye, and off ye go! For as ye Pirates know.... ‘tis finders keepers!

All hail the mighty Brethren of Pirates!
